Our sponsor HOOTERS will be hosting an awesome after party on Sunday at the fields!

You can also look forward to the HOOTERS Beer Tent & Wings Bar on the fields both Saturday and Sunday.

The competition is Open Team Based and open to any fitness or training facilities (not just Crossfit) BUT there will be no scaled divisions.

Movements will include all your standard in-house box movements: double unders, pull ups, chest to bar, barbell work, dumbbell work, kettle bell work, running, jumping, climbing, pull, push, carry, lunge, squat, row, gymnastics, swimming, Olympic lifting as well as everyyyything else! 

Only 100 teams can register – and it’s on a first-come, first-served basis – of 4 people per team (2 male and 2 female). 

On top of this, we have a Masters Division of 50 allocated team slots, with the same team basis of 4 people per team, consisting of 2 males and 2 females.

The Masters age group will be from age 35+ and if you wish to compete in the open category, and you are classified as a master, you are most welcome to at your own choice. 

You will only find out what the workout is one hour before the first race starts. 

Yes – it is race-based.

There will be 9 events.

Each event consists of 10 heats of 10 teams.

The top 5 teams in each heat will proceed through to the semi-final. 

The semi-final will consist of 5 heats of 10 teams, where the top two teams per heat will go through to the next round, the final. 

The final will consist of one heat of 10 teams. First team to finish wins the event and gets the prize! 

Therefore, even teams that are knocked out first in each round, will still have 9 races. Top teams who make it through will have 3 races per event (heats, semi-final and final) all in all – 27 races if you’re good enough!

Will you make the cut? See you on the fields!
